Today, I’m excited to share with you how to decorate a chandelier with flowers for Spring.
If you had a chance to see our Spring Inspired Dining Room as part of the Spring Festival Blog Hop you likely caught a glimpse of the Bridal Bush branches we used to decorate the chandelier in our dining room. We’ve previously used greenery in our chandelier for Christmas so I thought it would be fun to decorate our chandelier with flowers for Spring.
Using greenery or flowers when decorating for any holiday is an easy way to create a festive and transitional look from one season to the next. You can pick up faux flowers and dried greenery from your local craft store or just use fresh greenery or branches from your yard.
Keep in mind, if you choose to bring something inside from your yard, you’ll need to make sure it has been well cleaned and is free from any pests prior to using it in your chandelier. The number of branches or greenery you’ll need will depend on the size of your chandelier.
Start with a clean chandelier that is free from dust, dirt or debris.
Using caution and care, layer the bridal bush stems or stems of your choice through each chandelier arm. Depending on the type of greenery you chose you may need to mist stems to keep them looking fresh or water stems by using floral tubes.
Allow a few pieces to slightly drop to add a bit of whimsy.
Make sure the stems are not too heavy (you don’t want to cause any damage to your chandelier or ceiling) and have been properly secured with string or floral wire.
Keep in mind ALL parts of your flowers, stems and leaves should be completely clear of any lightbulbs and/or electrical wires.
Continue tucking and layering the bridal bush stems or stems of your choice at the base of the chandelier until you’ve achieved a look you love.
This is definitely one of those super simple decorating ideas that makes a big impact and doesn’t take very long to create at all.
Fresh greenery and Bridal Bush stems like these will probably only last about 2 days unless you use the floral tubes to keep them watered so you’ll want to plan something like this for a special occasion.
That being said, Spring is a fabulous time to make an ordinary day, extraordinary so pull out your good china and enjoy!
See you guys back here tomorrow. I’ll share easy steps on how you can give the pages of your old books an aged look for all of your spring vignettes. Until next time, I’ll see you on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.
